Nhan đề: Economic adjustment and political transformation in small states / Erik Jones Số phân loại : 338.9492 E206; Đặc điểm vật lý: 277Tr : Minh họa ; 24 cm
*Tóm tắt : The smaller countries of Western Europe have a reputation for being more successful than their larger neighbors. They are wealthier per capita, they are more stable politically, and they are more flexible economically. The secret to this success lies in their consensual style of politics and their corporatist style of decision-making. Unfortunately, however, that may be about to change. A political transformation underway in small states is undermining the politics of consensus and breakdown the effectiveness of corporatist institutions. Small countries are becoming increasingly vulnerable to the vicissitudes of world markets as a result .

Instead, as has happened throughout Japanese history, deregulation and the recession of the 1990s have once again led Japanese trade associations to assume important regulatory functions of their own .
